Move a branch to a separate diagram

Sometimes it's useful to be able to add lots of extra information behind a single item in your Coggle diagram.

To do this with Coggle, you can create a whole new diagram linked to an existing item:

  1. Right click on the item who's branches you want to link to a new diagram.
  2. Hold down the [shift] key: the copy icon in the menu will turn into an option to "copy branch to a new diagram".
  3. Click the "copy branch to a new diagram" icon. The branch and its child items will be copied into a new diagram.
  4. The branch selected is automatically converted into a link to the new diagram which you can click to open it. The title of the new diagram is also a link back to the original.

Alternatively, if you want to move the branch and all its existing child items to the new diagram, instead of copying them, hold either the [ctrl] or [alt] keys after opening the menu.
